I can barely remember ER, but wasn't this the kind of character Ming Na played? Wasn't her character accused of being, well, too clinical? Those Asian robot doctors, so stoic and unfeeling, all about the science and not about the patients. Makes you kind of appreciate the stoner med student that Kal Penn played in Harold & Kumar.
Well, it's only been 3 episodes, so hopefully her character will flesh out some more and we'll get to find out what's going on beneath that hardened, tough-ass exterior. I've enjoyed the show so far. And I've really liked Sandra Oh in almost everything I've seen her in so far. I think this will turn out to be a good thing for Asian American representation on prime time. Yes, another Asian American playing a doctor, but hey, have you seen the kids at med school lately? Certainly based in reality. Now, how about adding some Filipino nurses on the show?
